nVENTIV Introduced Most Powerful Mass PC Cooling Solution

@ 2004/03/19
Only a few days have passed since the introduction of the new low-cost but highly efficient phase-change cooling system aka Mach II ST. But already now, on ASUS booth at CeBIT you could see one more Mach II modification from nVENTIV at work.



nVENTIV Mach II GT is positioned as a high-end solution, which performance is the key factor determining the users’ buying decisions. Mach II GT has no performance issues to worry about. The thermal characteristics of the new system are unprecedented for the mass products of the kind. In fact, you can only achieve better results if you use specially designed cascade systems or vapor cooling (with liquid nitrogen or dry ice). The vaporization temperature is around -65C (under 0W workload), which is 15 degrees better than the results shown by Mach II. The temperature under maximum workload of 200W have also dropped proportionally: the vaporization temperature is -40C, while the CPUI surface temperature equals to -20C.



The newcomer features an enhanced thermal insulation system, compared with Mach II: thermal bus acquired new heating wires, which improved the reliability of the system in case of higher humidity. Also start-up time grew shorter. The standard package of nVENTIV Mach II GT includes a front panel LCD display (which is optional for Mach II), is compatible with any accessories designed for other nVENTIV systems and optionally comes in an aluminum case from Lian Li (black or silver).



And in order to prove that they really do what they say, nVENTIV demonstrated record breaking opportunities their new system offers. They overclocked Prescott 3.2E to 5008MHz and the CPU remained STABLE at that impressive clock rate! So, they entered the prestigious “5GHz” club on ordinary stock phase-change unit! Before that, such frequencies used to be the prerogative of vaporization cooling solutions, liquid nitrogen cooling systems or self-designed cascade systems.

Of course, this superior achievement of nVENTIV Company opens another chapter in the world’s overclocking history. This is a truly impressive result and excellent promotion for their Mach II GT system (although I don’t think that all of you will be able to repeat this success, because nVENTIV spent a lot of time and effort in order to set this record).

blame the early/late hour and the admin

I agree with you: phase-change stuff isn't ment to be moved to LAN parties.

selling phase-changed units to everyday consumers is very difficult: if you sell a freezer, you put in the power plug and voila, it works. now regular consumers have to play the technician theirselves and start working with the very sensitive capillary tubing.

that's not more then normal, I guess. but frequently something goes wrong and then you're standing there with a $1000 deluxe freezer. the capillary tubing gets damaged if you twist the evaporator too much, fortunately you can get that fixed by any refrigerations expert. too bad Nventiv is still screwing around with the temperature sensors, the units have to be sent back often to Nventiv for something small like a temperature sensor

watercooling is difficult to handle: filling, bleeding, building it in. phase-changed units are even harder to handle: they're heavy as lead, the evaporator can't make good contact, you can get condensation and the unit might break down.

if you want some nice OC's or a silent PC, watercooling is worth the effort. you have to take the disadvantages with it. a prometeia or vapo is meant for the hardcore OC'ers: if you get one, you're addicted to OC'ing so you should take all disadvantages with it.

I really need to start reading over my post before actually posting it... all those spelling mistakes :spank:

I bet to differ

I feel that if you choose to go the phase change way, the retail products are waaaaaayyy to expensive, unfortunately, building your own phase change rig isn't like putting together your own watercooling. You need skills, tools, and a basic idea of where to get both.


If I'd have the skills, there would be no doubt on my mind as to what I would do. The prices for any retail phase change cooling, no matter how basic you take it, is way too expansive as I said before. I don't care if you can use and reuse it (to some extend) for years to come, to me, it's still not worth it.

For the price you pay for a prommy, you can build your own that is by far superiour to the retails.

As for looks and movability; I think hiding your ugly phase change rig in a (wooden if need be) case seems like the simplest thing to do of the enter project and as far as moving it (for LAN's or such) is concerned, you're just nuts, even concidering of hoaling (<--?) the whole "santeboetiek" around sounds stupid to me (no offense). The only reason of existense to me seems to be that of overclocking; not bragging rights, not looks, not movability, ...

however, the gt at cebit looked quite great...

5 ghz of prescott power cooled to -50+ evap temp...

@ the vrzone article... : it's very good for them but it actually doesn't mean anything to me, it's unusable in everyday situations due to its placetaking sloppy and longterm unstable character...
and it's not transportable

To me a mach 2 means usability AND looks AND superior cooling...
THis has NO appeal to me, however cold it is...

eat your heart out nVENTIV :grin:

prolly costs less to make to... IF you can make it =-)

Try 12 gauge if you mean a shotgun.
16/20 more likely then

shotgun

he was talking about his sawed off pellet gun !!

I guess 2.7 ghz a64 would go along up to 4.2 ghz but not above that...
I don't know what one is fastest but keep in mind, it's an Engineering sample with the newest edition of the Prometeia versus a normal AMD64 setup

Oc or Die!

nice slogan

an athlon xp @ 2600 and i'm happy too

however you could die in the process, I travel fully packed.

sawed-off .12 cal

mugg some granny's :grin:

way easier and doesn't cost you a think

Hmmm... if i had a well paying job i'd buy one. : )

hey where did you find out about this?

the orb needs 3 ghz a64's to compete with 4.4 ghz p4's...
5 ghz is way outta there.

and maybe this can phasechange an fx53 to 16*200...
Comment from jmke @ 2004/03/19
5ghz P4 is almost as fast as gamer's 2.7ghz A64
Comment from calantak @ 2004/03/19
god dajjum

I just changed my mind, I'm going back to phasechange.
Whenever this comes available, I'm gettin' it.
